PGA suspends Dustin Johnson for cocaine use

The PGA Tour has suspended golfer Dustin Johnson for 6-months following his second failed cocaine test in two years. It is the golfer’s third failed drug test since 2009, when Johnson tested positive for marijuana.

Johnson had been previously suspended for his first cocaine violation back in 2012, however, the the suspension was never made public. When speaking on the 2012 issue, Johnson’s manager, David Winkle went on record saying, “Dustin is not serving a drug suspension. I will make it clear, he has been injured. He is playing golf again, he is very rusty but champing at the bit to get back out there,” (Hoggard, Golfchannel.com via cbssports.com).

The news of Johnson’s suspension comes just a week shy of the PGA Championship. Johnson will miss other key PGA events which include, the Barclays, and the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

In a statement released by Johnson, the 30-year-old golfer plans to use his time away from the tour wise, claiming “I will use this time to seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced”.  In the statement Johnson also says, “By committing the time and resources necessary to improve my mental health, physical well-being and emotional foundation, I am confident that I will be better equipped to fulfill my potential and become a consistent champion” (ESPN.com).

Johnson has one victory on the season with two second place finishes. He currently ranks fourth in the FedEx playoffs that he will be required to miss due to suspension. His last tour win came at the WGC-HSBC Championship in Asia, an event that Johnson will also miss during his six month absence. The suspension puts an end to Johnson’s Ryder Cup chances, as the golfer was expected to be selected to the team after enjoying one of his best seasons as a pro.
